September – Conwy Honey Fair – shopping medieval style, Conwy Honey Fair has been running for more than 700 years.
The Conwy Honey Fair in North Wales dates back more than 700 years to the reign of King Edward 1st, when local beekeepers were first given the right to sell honey within the walls of the North Wales town, every September 13th, from midnight to midnight, without charge. The right to hold the fair is in the town’s Royal Charter.
Conwy Beekeepers’ Association floated the idea of a food festival in the walled town following the success of the 2003 Honey Fair. The idea met with approval and generous funding from the Welsh Development Agency and The Cooperative Group Wales, and many local businesses. The first Gwledd Conwy Feast was held on 22nd to 24th October 2004 in various venues in Conwy, indoors and outdoors, celebrating the wide variety of local food and drink. About 50 local food and drink stallholders attended, and the event attracted 7 to 8000 visitors. The event is now an annual celebration and continues to grow from strength to strength.
